FooBar 1.0.1 from the project's current home (eg github). Would this be an

More controversial variant:

How about early during the incubation period, while the project is still in
the process of transitioning the necessary infrastructure, etc, into the

allowed to make "external" releases during this initial period of
incubation, for the purposes of bug fixes?
